Look Up In The Sky It's Superman: The Man of steel
The world’s greatest and most iconic superhero, is flying back to the big screen in summer of 2013. Superman: The Man of Steel starring Henry Cavil as our hero. The first look has just been released.
Just in time for the 75th anniversary of Superman will come what is promised to be a bold and daring take on the age old comic book hero, Superman.
Superman is the last son of Krypton sent to Earth as its last best hope for peace. This is something that very few modern filmgoers are aware of unless they’ve watched all 10 seasons of Smallville.
This is the reason for a much needed reboot and reintroduction to the story of Superman.
The cast is superb and full of talent from top to bottom. Henry Cavill as Superman/Clark Kent, Amy Adams as Lois Lane, Diane Lane as Martha Kent, Kevin Costner as Jonathan Kent, in a surprisingly diverse casting Laurence Fishburne as Perry White, and Michael Shannon as the Kryptonian villain General Zod.
Zack Snyder, the visionary director who brought 300 and Watchmen to the screen along with David S. Goyer the writer of The Dark Knight have been brought in to helm the iconic superhero to what the studio will hope is Kryptonite against other films in the box office. Christopher Nolan, the director of Batman Begins, The Dark Knight and The Dark Knight Rises will be a producer on the film.
The last film, Superman Returns was one of the most expensive films ever made in history and proved to be lackluster with audiences and critics alike.
Superman is being reintroduced to much more jaded and less optimistic society. He will have to be a character that is not so prim, proper, perfect and clean cut. There is a tremendous opportunity here to introduce some much needed conflict to the character. Unfortunately, in the past the only conflict that we’ve seen Superman really have is that of everyone else’s.Continued on the next page
